Weekend Shenanigans

Oh weekends, why must you be so short??? Why can’t a work hours go by as fast as a Saturday afternoon? These are the questions I ponder every Sunday evening as the clock strikes closer and closer to bedtime.

I had a fantastic Friday since my nephews stayed with Zoe and I all day. I got lots of work done, Zoe took her normal naps and the boys had some video game and down time while I worked. And then we took a break and played a game of Life. We had so much fun playing!!! Friday evening, we packed it up and headed to meet my sister for an early Mexican dinner at Mi Casita. It was delicious, as always.

Saturday during Zoe’s morning nap, I cut the front and side yard. It was so hot and so humid I thought I might just kill over a few times. Woof. I got it done though and was so proud of myself! During her afternoon nap I cleared out the remain “storage” type items that were sitting in my office so that I can finally start making it look like an office. You know, the one I have been working out of the last five months and ignoring the disaster that was everywhere.

After all that work, I figured I deserved a break so I played some Mario Kart on the Switch! I was determined to win a gold cup on each of the tracks and I so did. I unlocked tons of new car options. You know, life goals.

Saturday evening we met up with Chris’s parents at Crazy Horse, one of our favorite restaurants. You won’t find a better steak anywhere. We enjoyed catching up with them, and Zoe was glad to get out of the house for a little while.

Sunday was meal planning, grocery shopping and just laying low. I started reading Hello, Sunshine and got about 40% through the book and Zoe and I read about ten of her books too. Chris and I have been tearing through the newest season of House of Cards. Love that show.

And just like that, the weekend was over and it is back to reality. How was your weekend? Linking up with Biana. Let’s do this, Monday!

    She looks so BIG in these pics! Growing too fast. We have only watched 3 episodes of HoC so far… we’re trying to make it last but I know we’ll eventually binge it! All the food looks so good as I sit here wondering if it’s too early to eat my lunch… lol!

    I havent played LIFE in FOR-EV-ER!!!! The hubs always says we already owe enough in bills, why play a game that puts us in debt or life too 😉
    Confession: I’ve never played Mario Kart. GASP

    So have you gone through season 3 of HOC? I hear some people give up after that season. We really want to binge it this summer. Do you think I’ll love it! My favorite stuff here: Mexican and Zoe smiles!

    We just started the new season this weekend, and have gotten through episode 3. I love Kevin Spacey so much! That Mexican looks delicious, and I love seeing Zoe girl in her pink elephant romper!

    Omg I forgot to tell you that we FINALLY got a Switch and Mario Kart is my jam!!!! The hubs likes to play Breath of the Wild once I’ve gone to bed, but I have a feeling I’m going to be rocking out on that game while on maternity leave 😉

    The food at Crazy Horse looks SO good! I’d be all over that! And go you for cutting your own grass in the heat and humidity!

    Soo much good food- my mouth is watering! Life was always one of my favorite games and Mario Cart is always so much fun. We haven’t been able to start the new season of HOC yet, but I am SO excited!

    Super mom! Instead of resting when baby Z is down, you’re out trying to get shit done! I hope you got some R&R in there on Sunday with sweet cheeks hanging out

    I really just want the Switch for the new Mario Kart game 🙂
    Life is my FAVORITE board game. Or it used to be… It’s been forever since I’ve played!

    I haven’t played Life or Mario Kart in forever, but now I really want to. You can never go wrong with Mexican food!

    Sounds like a great weekend! Yum that food all looks so good. The danger of reading blogs right before lunch. LOL! 🙂 So love how much you read to Zoe! We just finished Riverdale, and we’re moving on to Stranger Things. Wayyyy behind the times! 😛 XO – Alexandra
